If you’re not familiar with the term “White Elephant Gift,” then let me explain. It’s basically regifting a gift you’re not too thrilled with. And they’re usually given during holiday parties, where most of the gifts are unusually tacky, funny or downright strange (that’s right, I’m talking to you Talking Bass Wall fixture!). Some of the gifts can be very cool, though, and thus during the gift exchange part of the party, participants can “take” a gift they like better than the one they opened—usually up to three times. It’s a fun party to be at.
Sometimes we all want to hide under the covers. For various reasons, such as the weather, the news, or the recent holiday feasting, we’ve all contemplated or even done just that. However, on this week’s World Music Show (11/25), there’ll be no need to hide.
On this week’s World Music Show (9/23), I have three major reasons that are membership worthy. However, there are a few things that need to be said.
It’s an age-old Public Radio adage. You pay for the things you value—such as magazines, cable connections and coffee. But when it comes to Public Radio, which is available in many distribution outlets, it seems to be a freebie. I mean, you turn it on, or hit the streaming button and there it is—day and day out, whenever you need it.
I’ve got a basket full of new music to unwrap on this week’s World Music Show (9/9). Ok, wait—that’s a lie. Really, every track on this week’s show was downloaded digitally. Is that redundant? Because when you download something doesn’t that imply “digitally”?
Be forewarned—I’m going to date myself. And it’s not the first time. It’s all about What’s Happening. And no, not the “Hey, Hey, Hey, What’s Happening” from the classic TV show with Rerun and the gang, though that’s what I thought of when I came up with this title (hence, the dating myself). But for this week’s World Music Show (9/2), we’re going to find out What’s Happening!
